There I was, the eighteen year old kid with black hair, wearing a skull t-shirt, not many people noticed me at school and well I didn’t really notice them. At Lunch times I would usually hang out with my friend Matt in the school library… This kid was seriously obsessed with ‘My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic’. It was all he would talk about. It never bothered me, not many people at school would talk about the show most of them would keep it a secret. Some would be open about it and some would hate you for watching it. Me, I was the guy that would sit on the fence, as they would say, I didn’t care if you watched it or didn’t, it wasn’t my decision to judge people about what they liked, and really, who cared if you watched it or didn’t? I’ve got to admit I watched it a couple of times and didn’t find it that bad. Hey it seems like my friend Matt has just walked into the library
“Hey, how’s it going?”
“Same old, same old”
“Did you see the new episode of MLP?”
“You know I don’t watch that show at home”
“Cause unlike you Matt I got a life instead of sitting around at home watching ponies all day”
“Well you still watch the damn show though”
“True, true, but still that’s a different story”
We sat in silence for some time until the bell finally rang. I stood up, as did Matt, and headed for the door.
“Guess it’s time to go home…… Catch you later matt”
“Yeah see ya bro”
On way home I would usually crank my iPod up to max volume and screamed feel like I do by Drowning Pool, but I didn’t feel too good. My vision was going blurry and I had the worst headache ever. I was just about to open the front door revealing my home when all of sudden a purple flash occurs, it blinded me, it just stayed there floating and glowing brighter. Out of sheer curiosity I approached it and carefully placed my hand on it. I felt my hand tingle until everything went blurry again, it seemed like the world was spinning in circles and all I could see was a massive optical illusion in front of my eyes. I slowly started to pass out until I finally did.
Chapter 1: The Strange arrival
As I slowly awoke, I could hear strange voice next to me
“Who is this guy,” I heard the voice said as if it was talking to itself. “I’ve never seen him before”
As I opened my eyes I could see a four leg animal standing near the bed I awoke upon
“Aggghhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!” I screamed, “What is this place…? Where am I?”
“You’re in PonyVille” said the White pony as if it was stating the obvious.
“What am I doing here?”
“I don’t know I found you passed out in front of my Boutique store…. You’ve been out for at least four days”
“But how did I end up here…. The last thing I remember that happened I was walking home and I can’t remember anything after that, who are you anyway?” I looked around the room to see it looked well-kept and clean.
“My name is Rarity I’m the most Fashionable pony in all Equestria”
“Well Thanks for helping me”
As I got out the bed I could see another pair of black legs and a red and black tail”
“Holy crap where are my Flamming arms”
“What do you mean,” she asked in a soothing voice which sounded very feminine “I’ve never met a pony that looks like you before”
“No I’m flamming not, I’m a normal human being”
“What’s a human being,” she asked with a dirty look upon her face.
“You know…… It’s Hard to explain”
As I rolled out the bed I tried to stand up on my new four legs. But it only took me three seconds to fall flat on my face.
“Do you need help learning to walk,” giggles Rarity
“Nah I’ll be right soon I’ve just got to get used to walking on four legs instead of two”
I begin to get back off the ground
“Hey I’m standing up,” I said while shaking.
“Good for you” Rarity said while smiling, “now see if you can walk to the cupboard over there.
I begin to walk to the cupboard but, as anyone who is given four legs, I begin to shake and wobble like crazy, but as I turn around to head back to the bed the wobbling and shacking eases and I stride back in ease and start walking like a normal pony.
“Hey I’m doing it” I yell at the top of my voice
“How about you go to the mirror over there and see if your vision is back, you looked a little dizzy before”
The mirror was huge and I could see my entire body and face in one glance.
“I look bloody awesome” I yell
My entire body was black I even had black wings and red eyes, red and black main and tail and my hooves were red and on my flank there was a mark of some sort in the shape of a music note in a tribal design
“Wow whats this design on my leg”
“That’s your Cutie Mark”
“What is a Cutie Mark?”
“Well… A Cutie Mark is what every pony is given to represent their talent”
“Well what’s my Talent?”
“I’m guessing Music …. But the design of the symbol is different to anything I’ve seen” said Rarity, “Maybe it represents the kind of music you play or like”
“Well I do Like Heavy Metal Music”
“Well Maybe that’s what it means”
“Sick I’m going to love being a pony”
“Hey what’s your name?”
“Oh…. I’m Karl”
“Well what’s your nickname?”
“On Earth they used to could me….. Shadow”
“Well then… how about we call you shadow while you spend your time in PonyVille”
“Cool….. So Rarity”
“Yes Karr…. I mean Shadow”
“Since I’m new to being a pony AND I don’t know anything about Equestria or PonyVille for that fact…. Would you mind if you could show me around PonyVille”
“Sure I got nothing else to do right now… I also introduce you to all the other ponies around PonyVille”
“Cool….. And thanks for taking care of me for the past couple of days”
“That’s okay” Rarity said trying not to blush, “Well let’s get to it”
